Author(s): Asif Islam, Fatima Khurshid, Ayesha Ashfaq, Samara Siddique, Rizwana Manzoor, Umaima Waris


Eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis, EGPA is a rare systemic vasculitis characterized by eosinophilic infiltration of various organs. EGPA can damage the peripheral nervous system in addition to the respiratory system. The purpose of this report is to underscore the relevance of evaluating EGPA as a differential diagnosis in patients with peripheral neuropathy, as well as the value of early detection and treatment. This case report describes a patient who developed peripheral neuropathy as the first symptom of EGPA. The patient's clinical course, diagnostic diagnosis, and therapy are discussed, highlighting the difficulties and need of early intervention in EGPA instances. This case report serves as a reminder to healthcare practitioners to evaluate EGPA in patients presenting with peripheral neuropathy symptoms, allowing for quick diagnosis and proper management.
